Default When was your first experience with Everquest?

I'm Interested to see the demographic of veteran players vs. first-timers!

I logged in for the first time on May 21, 1999. I walked up to the PoD in Kelethin, hit attack and got owned. Everquest was a part of my life for the next 5 or so years.

I don't remember the exact date but it was June or July of 1999 on my bro's acct. I made a HIE Paladin (as my character in the AD&D camps i was in was a pally) and ran around faydark for a bit. Later on in Aug of 1999 my bro surprised me with my own copy. Made my own pally with it then tried several other classes til I found my nitch, the necro which was created 01/20/2000 on bertoxx named Dallammarr. Right before him though I did make a monk i believe in oct or nov of 1999 named Shalafii which I always kept around as the monk was my second fav class.

I used to think I started playing during late Velious but looking back now it seems I actually started during Luclin but I only had the original Trilogy.

I think I was around 25 at the time.
